I think you should be able to fit a PCI card in order to flash the agp card.

I just looked in the BIOS on my 8RGA+ and PCI slot is set as the default display device - this must be the default setting because I have not changed it.

Hi, what bios were you trying to flash it with?

IF u know what to type ofcourse, the computer will still work, just without display

Hmmmm... could try writing a batch file on a boot floppy...
get it to run the bios flasher with the file (have to check the command line parameters for your flasher). Put a pause command in there so if you leave the disk in by mistake once (if?) you get it back on its feet it cant run the flasher by mistake.
If you need it ill look for the exact commands to put in the batch file.
Basically though get hold of an old 9x boot disk from www.bootdisk.com then edit the autoexec.bat file with the extra lines you need.
Should need something like

Pause
nameofflasher.exe (or com) - nameofbiosfile.bin

adding to the bottom of the autoexec. Just run the flasher on a working machine from the cmd window with the /? command switch after it and it should give the line you'll need.
A lot of "shoulds" in there I know but hope that helps. If you think I can help anymore with it gimme a yell.
